« (Not so) Live Blogging, 10:54 pm [by Sharon Mesmer] | Main | Dear Poets and Bleaders — A Request [by Sharon Mesmer] »

November 28, 2008


Here's some J.K. Stephen trivia - he was Virginia Woolf's first cousin, and had a pathological obsession with her half-sister, Stella Duckworth, at one time bursting into their house brandishing a sword-stick that he used to stab the bread on the dinner table. His behavior became more and more bizarre until finally he was carted off to a lunatic asylum, where he died, but not before being added to the list of suspects in the Jack-the-Ripper murders.

Poets are such a colorful bunch.

Colorful, you're not kidding, LO. And how comes it that you know so much about J. K. Stephen?

I just seem to remember weird stuff. Where I put my car keys, I couldn't tell you.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later

in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
